Northern California is considered San Francisco and up. It is a million times more beautiful than ugly fake Southern California and doesn't have 3 Starbucks' on every scorner.
Includes the Golden Gate Bridge, beautiful Redwood forests, Mt. Shasta, acres of wine country, and its beaches actually have blue water (instead of murky green/brown) and beautiful, big boulders.
The further north you go, the less development and fake plastic orange people with unnecessary amounts of money there are, and the more untouched landscape and scenery there is.
Me: I went on a roadtrip up Highway 1 to Northern California today.
You: OMG, I'm soo jealous, San Bernadino County sucks so much!
